Summarize Life Years Lost over a range of differents ages


summary for objects of class lyl_range summarizes Life Years Lost over a range of different ages.


## S3 method for class 'lyl_range'
summary(object, decimals = 2, weights = NA, difference = FALSE, ...)



An object of class lyl_range (obtained with function lyl_range).


Number of decimals to be reported (default is 2).


Vector with age distribution of disease/condition onset. If weights are not provided (dafault is weights = NA), then the differences in Life Years Lost at each age are summarized. If weights are provided, then a weighted average is provided.


Parameter automatically created by the package.


Additional arguments affecting the summary produced.


A table with the summary of the results.
